Holy crap, you're lucky! 2/26/77 is quite possibly my favorite Grateful Dead show, and the second set is nearly perfect. Replace Promised Land and US Blues with something else or just drop 'em, and it's my idea of a perfect second set. The Help>Slip!>Frank is outstanding and Around and Around builds from slowly delicious to rapidly insane, but the special part of the show for me is the jam between Eyes and Dancin'. Phil goes absolutely nuts, and it sounds like he extends the jam longer than the band planned on until it dissolves into the upbeat and happy Dancin'.
